A Beauty & A Beast
Up to 5 times faster WiFi. 100% compatibility.
The Cisco Meraki MR53 sets the new standard in wireless. Designed specifically for high density and next generation deployments, it's the world's fastest cloud-managed wireless access point.
Using wider channel bandwidths, more efficient transmission technologies, and less crowded channels at 5 GHz help the MR53 achieve speeds up to 2.5 Gbps, while also providing administrators complete visibility and control.
The MR53 increases the channel bandwidth — the size of the pipe used to transmit data — up to 160 MHz. These wider channels enable faster transmissions and increase aggregate performance in dense multi-client environments.
With enhanced modulation, the MR53 encodes data more efficiently. By sending more data over the air in less time, the MR53 can support more clients at once, and speeds uploads and downloads of large files and video.
The MR53’s 802.11ac radio operates exclusively in the 5 GHz band, a less-crowded spectrum enabling wider channels with less interference. A second radio is dedicated to supporting legacy 802.11b/g/n clients at 2.4 GHz.
The MR53 includes the industry’s first cloud-managed third radio dedicated to optimizing the RF environment and securing the airwaves. This third radio is dual-band, providing spectrum intelligence across 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies and full-time security protection from network vulnerabilities.
Software that optimizes and secures your wireless network
Auto RF aggregates network-wide spectrum analytics through the Meraki cloud platform to automatically determine access point power levels and channel assignments. The full-time scanning capabilities of the dedicated third radio allow the MR53 to dynamically adjust and optimize the RF environment for connecting clients.Learn more about Auto RF
The MR53 features a dedicated scanning and rogue AP containment system without interrupting client traffic. Its built in wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) scans the wireless environment for vulnerabilities and neutralizes threats such as nearby rogue APs.Learn more about Air Marshal
Prioritize mission critical applications like VoIP and throttle or block recreational applications such as YouTube or P2P file sharing, even at faster 802.11ac speeds. The MR53 includes an integrated Layer 7 packet inspection, classification, and control engine, enabling you to set QoS policies based on traffic type.Learn more about traffic shaping
A True Fit
The MR53 integrates seamlessly into existing wireless environments
Upgrading a wireless network has never been easier. The MR53 supports existing 11a/b/g/n clients to make migration simple. Deploy the MR53 to add 802.11ac capacity into an existing WiFi network, and manage everything from the dashboard.Download the MR53 datasheet
